Orange Ginger Coconut Smoothie

Orange Ginger Coconut Smoothie
The weather outside has been frightful. Wind whipping, temperature dipping. I needed a bit of sunshine in a glass. I don't care for ice in my smoothies, so I used cold ingredients. Makes 16 ounces without ice cubes.

You'll need approximately:

  • half of a medium orange, cut up
  • .5 tsp orange zest
  • .25 tsp ground ginger
  • dash nutmeg
  • .5 cup Fage Total 0% greek yogurt
  • 1 cup So Delicious coconut milk
  • .25 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tbs sweetened, shredded coconut
Put yogurt in blender then add spices. Add zest and shredded coconut. Add coconut milk then  orange pieces. Pour pineapple juice over contents. Blend on high for about 45 seconds then liquify for about 15. Scrape blender bowl if needed then repeat blending until desired consistency reached.
